THE CUT:  The 25 Best Red-Carpet Moments This Yearby The Fug Girls for New York Magazine.
#10: Coco Rocha at the Met Ball
Okay, technically it’s not a gown — it’s a vintage Givenchy pantsuit, complete with authentic red-wine stain, which Coco Rocha wore to the Met Ball after purchasing it from an auction of Elizabeth Taylor’s things. Had Coco worn it, say, to a movie premiere or to a party honoring some random new smartphone, we might feel differently. But this outfit has two places in time: on Elizabeth in its era, and on Rocha here, as a nod to the “Impossible Conversation” between a deceased superstar and a living supermodel. We loved it as a clever nod to the night’s theme, and Coco wore the hell out of it — no mean feat when you try to imagine if Lindsay Lohan, in full Taylor regalia, had worn it in Liz & Dick. We are clutching our phantom pearls in very real horror.

Models aren’t generally known for their word play. But Modelinia.com’s  cool new T-shirts are emblazoned with model-related catchphrases that  riff on well-known idioms and logos. Now you can Facebook “like” Karlie  Kloss or proclaim that “Nobody does it better than Abbey Lee” on your  shirt.Backstage buddies Coco Rocha and Behati Prinsloo combine their names in  the “Team Cohati” tee, a take on the pro-Conan O’Brien “Team Coco”  graphic. “I like that we’ve become the Brangelina of the modeling  world,” Rocha said backstage at Anna Sui. “But I’m kind of obsessed with  Lara Stone’s Rolling Stones spinoff — that gap tooth is just perfect.”The tees are $45 each on Modelinia’s Facebook store,  and all the proceeds go to Unicef. Get them while they’re hot: as the  Modelinia editor Bianca Posterli says, “We made them limited edition  because our girls are too special to be mass.”  We won’t mention the  early catalog years.

Models aren’t generally known for their word play. But Modelinia.com’s cool new T-shirts are emblazoned with model-related catchphrases that riff on well-known idioms and logos. Now you can Facebook “like” Karlie Kloss or proclaim that “Nobody does it better than Abbey Lee” on your shirt.

Backstage buddies Coco Rocha and Behati Prinsloo combine their names in the “Team Cohati” tee, a take on the pro-Conan O’Brien “Team Coco” graphic. “I like that we’ve become the Brangelina of the modeling world,” Rocha said backstage at Anna Sui. “But I’m kind of obsessed with Lara Stone’s Rolling Stones spinoff — that gap tooth is just perfect.”

The tees are $45 each on Modelinia’s Facebook store, and all the proceeds go to Unicef. Get them while they’re hot: as the Modelinia editor Bianca Posterli says, “We made them limited edition because our girls are too special to be mass.” We won’t mention the early catalog years.

Countdown to Haiti
by Coco Rocha

As I write this blog I’m in a hotel in Montreal, the home of Canada’s largest Haitian population. At 4:53pm today there will be drum roll’s heard across the city, and across the world - this is Haiti’s traditional form observance for exactly one year that has passed since the terrible earthquake that devastated their homeland.

In just 10 days I’ll be heading down to Haiti with a few others to see just what has been accomplished in the 365 days that have passed, and how much more still needs to be done. I still need your help though, we only have about two more days for you to send in letters to our office in New York in time for me to take them to Haiti. Remember that these letters are going to children and orphans who have nothing and often have no one either.

Letters To Haiti
C/O Wilhelmina
300 Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 10010-5398



If you feel you don’t have time to send in an actual letter, we have set up a special email address you can write to also. We will then print the letters and hand them to the children in person. Please remember to include your name, age and address in all the emails and send them to:

letterstohaiti@gmail.com

Please pass this message onto as many as you can. Whether that be through facebook, twitter, tumblr or just word of mouth. As we consider the earthquake that hit exactly one year ago, let us acknowledge the tragedy of the past while keeping our eyes and hearts open to the prospects of hope for the future.

Love,
Coco

P.S Are there specific things you want me to find out or do while in Haiti? Please let me know in your comments.

ELLE SELLS ME OUTWell well well, I think this quote has gotten way more exposure than it deserves ;) Please enjoy Elle’s full page spread based around the fact that I recently said I… sometimes… may… perhaps… forget to wash my face on a night. Oh the scandal of it all!! And I absolutely love that they used the picture of me in full on Galliano FW10 queen-of-the-ice-cavemen make-up. Believe me, I washed my face more than once that night!!

WELCOME TO MY NEW HOME ON THE WEB!!Actually I’ve been here for a little while, secretly, but I had to get my handle on this new social media tool before telling one and all. If you’re visiting here from my old blogspot - well hello there! Welcome to blogging in 2010!! I’ve picked tumblr as my new platform to blog from as I feel its much simpler and easier to manage and navigate (look at the tags to the left) than anything else out there. Everything of note that goes on my facebook and my twitter is blogged here - so if you look through the archive you’ll find a lot of things that you never saw on blogspot.If you don’t already have one, get your own tumblr and follow me! Its the way of the future people…Speaking of which: Have you tried out googles new fashion baby Boutiques.com yet? Its a fashion social media platform designed by the geniuses at google. They have you pick and save your  favorite clothing pieces and then use complex algorithms (just using the word algorithm makes it complicated to me) to analyze and suggest clothing you might like. Like pandora for music, it works, mostly… A  lot of fashion movers and shakers have accounts already so its fun to  follow them also. And you know I couldn’t pass up yet another social media  forum.

Cohati Teams Up For Haiti

Taken from Modelinia.com

It’s no secret that Behati Prinsloo’s expanding her creative talents into the world of photography. She recently snapped images of her BFF Coco Rocha and her hubby (at the time) to-be and also curated her first exhibit as part of Fratelli Rossetti’s Fashion’s Night Out event to display their Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

But now, in addition to learning how to develop her own film, she’s turning her lens to a worthy cause, and teaming up with Coco Rocha to benefit those in need in Haiti. Given Coco’s involvement with Lakay Pam and latest plans for two upcoming trips to Haiti, it makes perfect sense that she would bring in her BFF to aid in the good of others.

“Coco approached me about the idea and I would love to help her out,” Behati explained to Modelinia. “We’re trying to go, [to Haiti] but she told me the other day that a disease broke out, so we’re going to wait until it calms down. I’m going to go to take pictures to show that they still need help after a year. We were thinking that after our first trip we’ll have a gallery exhibit to show what’s going on.”

We’re envisioning more than a few behind the scenes videos from the friends, paired with a blowout gallery exhibit, and massive outpouring of support from the fashion industry for Coco and Behati’s latest charity project.
